I think everybody of you heard about Mount Everest(or Chomolungma). If you want to know more about it, please read this post.

Mount Everest is a legend. World’s highest mountain with its 8848 meters. Imagine only to run, or to walk, almost 9 km. It means already an effort, and not many people will do this.

Climbing these almost 9 km is much worse! You need equipment, you need oxygen, you need intermediate camps and logistics. But a wider philosophical question emerges: why some people climb mountains? Maybe they seek the Gods. The legends about the Gods on Mount Everest are an explanation for the fact that no local conquered this mountain! The New Zealand born Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to realize it, together with a frightened local sherpa Tensing Norge.

Reinhold Meissner conquered Mt Everest without oxygen mask.

If you have been feeling guilty about spending too much money on vacations but still couldn’t fathom a long break without the routine adrenaline rush, you might want to consider giving back. Aside from being trendy, charitable vacations can be your cheapest tickets to the world’s best destinations. Taking the less popular path can also be beneficial for you because these tours tend to be more real and more exciting.
